In the first inning of Friday's Yankees-Mariners game, Curtis Granderson pulled a 1-0 pitch from Kevin Millwood foul to the right side of the field. A fan tried to field it. But instead of fielding it, he fell on the field, and he took some of the stands with him.

In slow motion, from another angle.

He and his friends were amused.

Curtis Granderson was amused.

And now you are amused.

The fan, by the way, did not get the ball.

I thought doing that triggered some auto-eject mechanism ... isn't that MLB policy? Just askin' ...
The usher talked to him, and it seemed at first like he was going to eject him, but he had mercy. Maybe he figured the embarrassment of being GIFfed by Baseball Prospectus would be punishment enough. The guy was still there toward the end of the game.
Not when you are wearing a white belt.
Still not as embarrassing as the guy who picks up a foul ball after it bounced off two seats and rolled to his feet and then he raises both hands waiting for the crowd to cheer the fact he is holding a ball in his hands.
A BASEBALL!!!!! Oh's the Holy Grail!!!

I don't get some fans' fascination with getting a stupid ball.
